Finding a Tax Representative Who is Right for You
Attempting to resolve outstanding tax liabilities on your own can be difficult and confusing. It is important to find a representative who knows the law and understands how the IRS works in order to resolve your tax debt in the best way possible.
You should check the credentials of the representative that you choose and be sure that the representative you are dealing with is the person who will be negotiating on your behalf.
There are a number of “tax defense firms” out there that may only have one employee on staff who is authorized to practice before the IRS and that may not be the person you are talking to. Individuals authorized to practice before the IRS include attorneys, certified public accountants and enrolled agents.
Find out who will be listed on the Power of Attorney form you are signing and review their credentials. Don’t be fooled into thinking that you are being represented by an attorney when you are not. Consider finding a representative who has an office location near you so that you can meet your representative face to face.
